Lillian Gish's performance will break your heart! The lead characters are exquisitely fragile, just like flower stems, and beautifully realized. The film gets off to an oh-so-slightly slow start in China, but once the scene shifts to America, you'll be hooked. The closet scene is really harrowing, even by today's standards. Favorite moment: Lucy's reaction when Cheng Huan gives the abused girl her first doll. The print is in surprisingly good shape. "Broken Blossoms" is as fine as, or better than, a lot of films being produced today.

This movie is also available on this same site on an earlier page. There are a lot of repeats as the page numbers go up. It would be great if the administrator of this web site would clean out the duplicates. Anyway, this movie is worth 5 stars.
